MYSTERIES OF LIFE
Recorded by: HANK LOCKLIN
 So many beautiful stories are  told
Of  love and affection that's purer than  gold
They meet and they love and he makes her his  wife
And  why it can't last is a mystery of  life.
I love you my darlin', I've always been true
Wherever you go, I'll be thinkin' of you
You say you don't want me, you wish to be free
If that's what you want, that's the way it will be.
I love you too much and not wisely, I know
I thought it was right 'cause you said it was so
And now for my wrong, dearly I pay the cost
The price is so high, if your love I have lost.
When Daddy told Mother till death to us part
He said it and meant it, right from the heart
But now it is different, how people have changed
The words of the Bible, they don't mean a thing.
God made the Ocean, the Forest and Trees
He made the Flowers, the Birds and the Bees
And why He permits all these Troubles and Strife
That is just one of the Mysteries Of Life.
